Tennis legend Martina Navratilova was subjected to some nasty comments on Twitter, after she shared an article on the ongoing controversy in the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) on Monday. 
 
‪The article titled 'India's Crackdown on Dissent' was a piece on the sedition charges against student leaders in the university.

‪Right-wingers soon started flooding her Twitter timeline with abuse and rebuttals, to which Martina responded with reactions ranging from "It is not anti-Indian to disagree with a particular party. You just proved the point of that article" to "How is disagreeing anti nationalist?" 
 
‪Here are some of Martina's responses.
